Treasure, Darkly by Jordan Elizabeth Mierek

Treasure, Darkly (Treasure #1)Treasure, Darkly by Jordan Elizabeth Mierek
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I am relatively new to the Steampunk genre. It combines an old world feel with gadgets and technology beyond its years. I find the contrast fascinating. Treasure, Darkly is a perfect example of a well written Steampunk novel. Despite its YA listing, I would recommend it to older teens and adults.

There should have been a warning label on that drink Clark stole from the captain of the army...serves him right for stealing! Little did he know it was a special invention to give a person the ability to bring the dead back to life. Now, Clark is a wanted man. He runs to the father he never knew. Clark is welcomed with open arms. The Treasure family is well respected and with great influence. Hopefully, they can keep Clark safe. The army may not be Clark's only problem when his sister, Amethyst, is kidnapped. Can Clark help save Amethyst? Will his family find out Clark's secret?

Despite his unfortunate upbringing, Clark is a hard working young man who doesn't want a hand out...just a little help. Being on the run has shaped his character, but he still holds true to what his mother taught him. Amethyst is one spoiled princess. Nothing a summer in the country and a kidnapping won't cure! What an enjoyable read! I will have to say I stared at the last page for a while...wanting, needing more. I can't wait till the next book in this series comes out!
